Overview

Siemon's SidePOD and Baffle solution is designed to support side-to-side ventilated active equipment such as the Cisco Nexus® 7018 Series Switches.

The SidePOD is an option for use with Siemon’s VP2A 1200mm (48 in.) deep VersaPOD cabinets and creates the necessary clearance for proper airflow to the switch. The baffles are used to properly route cold air from the front of the cabinet to the input side of the switch as well as route exhaust from the output side of the switch to be vented in the hot aisle. Cisco Nexus® 7018 Operational Compliance has been validated via Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling under maximum operating conditions.

In addition to providing a cooling platform, the SidePOD also allows full size Zero-U panels to be used in End of Row applications. This includes up to 12U of vertical patching and high capacity vertical cable management with hinged covers.

  • End of Row Capacity Increase ­ Increases with SidePOD so full size Zero-U patch panels and cable managers can be used.
  • Reversible Baffle Design ­ Baffles can be installed in either orientation to properly route either cold air input or hot air exhaust. Two angled baffles may be nested 180º to each other in the same Zero-U space allowing two side-vented switches to be mounted next to each other
  • Shared Use of VP2 Side Panels ­ The SidePOD is compatible with VP2 side panels allowing VersaPOD panels to be transitioned to the SidePOD when added to end of row installations
  • Zero-U Modularity ­ Ensures that with a baffle installed, the balance of Zero-U space can be fully utilized for patching or cable management.
  • Cable Access Openings ­ Multiple openings in the lid accept optional brush guards to provide cable access to the Zero-U space from overhead distribution systems.
